Stokes still weighing her options

I just spoke with Greg Stokes, the father of UConn recruiting target Kiah Stokes, who said his daughter is probably "a week or a week and a half" away from making her college decision.

Kiah made her fifth and final visit to Iowa and Greg Stokes said she enjoyed her visit just as she did her trips to UConn, Tennessee, Maryland and Georgia but that "nothing is cut and dry, she likes something about all five schools."

Her dad said that currently Kiah's main focus is helping her Linn-Mar volleyball team advance to the Iowa state tournament. Linn-Mar will host Clinton in Iowa's 4A Region 7 semifinals on Thursday night. With a win, Linn-Mar would advance to the Nov. 2 finals and a chance to play its way into the state tournament. Bettendorf and Pleasant Valley are on the other side of the bracket.

Greg Stokes thinks that a decision could be coming by the end of next week.

Stokes, a 6-foot-3 forward/center, is the last uncommitted senior on UConn's recruiting radar.

Stokes' visit to UConn came during the "First Night" festivities on Oct. 15. Speaking of that night, I mentioned that it was UConn commit Brianna Banks who - much to the shock of the UConn coaches and especially the compliance officers - burst onto the floor and danced during part of the events on Oct. 15. Actually, that was highly-touted sophomore Diamond DeShields who was standing and sitting next to UConn commit Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis while Banks was next to top junior prospect Moriah Jefferson in the video I shot of them in the stands.
